BTN School Days: Penn State Nittany Lions

It was all about the wrestling team when it came to the 2011-12 athletic year at Penn State. The Nittany Lions won their second consecutive national crown in dominating fashion, beating Big Ten rival and runner-up Minnesota by 25.5 points. What’s more, a trio of Penn State stars won the national title in his respective weight class — Frank Molinaro (149), David Taylor (165) and Ed Ruth (174). Taylor, a sophomore, also claimed the Dan Hodge Trophy, awarded to the National Wrestler of the Year.
